Difference Between a Computer Virus, Worm and Trojan
1. Computer Virus-1. Computer Virus-
A computer virus attaches itself to a program or file enabling it to
spread from one computer to another, leaving infections as it travels
like a human virus. 1. It effects while
others can damage your hardware, software or files. Almost all viruses
are attached to an executable file, which means the virus may exist on
your computer but it actually cannot infect your computer unless you
run or open the infected program. 2. It is important
to note that a virus cannot be spread without a human action, (such as
running an infected program) to keep it going.
3. People continue the spread of a computer virus,
mostly unknowingly, by sharing infecting files or sending e-mails with
viruses as attachments in the e-mail.
A worm is similar to a virus and considered to be a sub-class of a
virus. Worms spread from computer to computer, but unlike a
virus, it has the capability to travel without any human action.
The biggest danger with a worm is its capability to replicate itself
on your system, so rather than your computer sending out a single
worm, it could send out hundreds or thousands of copies of itself,
creating a huge devastating effect.
Due to the copying nature of a worm and its capability to travel
across networks the end result in most cases is that the worm
consumes too much system memory (or network bandwidth),
causing Web servers, network servers and individual computers to
When a Trojan is activated on your computer, the results can vary.
Some Trojans are designed to be more annoying than malicious
(like changing your desktop, adding silly active desktop icons) or
they can cause serious damage by deleting files and destroying
information on your system.
Trojans are also known to create a backdoor on your computer that
gives malicious users access to your system, possibly allowing
confidential or personal information to be compromised.
Unlike viruses and worms, Trojans do not reproduce by infecting
other files nor do they self-replicate.
An antivirus is a computer program that identify and remove
computer viruses and other malicious software like worms
and Trojans from an infected computer. Not only this,
antivirus software also protects the computer from further
